Medium to difficult. Eggs should be kept warm and humid, also the first  
4-5 instars of the caterpillars. Clean them every day! I reared them in  
closed containers. They have 8-11 instars! The caterpillars are very  
beautiful! I tried to pair them, but without success. Females are  
calling, but it seems males don't attracted to them. They where  
reared from wild collected females, so I don't know what could trigger
